We are committed to the Health, Safety and Welfare of our members of staff, our volunteers, and the members of the public who use our premises. Our aim is to ensure that our premises are a safe work, and worship environment for all, by controlling the hazards in and around our premises, and the hazards caused by what we do. We aim to prevent work-related injuries and ill health.

We will complete Risk Assessments and will regularly review them. We will consult with you about Health and Safety, and provide you with the information, instruction, supervision and the training that we consider is necessary.

We will make sure that you are kept safe by carrying out inspections and performing health surveillance as required. We will maintain equipment and the premises and provide any Personal Protective Equipment that we consider necessary for your Health and Safety.

You are asked to help us maintain a healthy and safe work and worship environment by reporting hazards, accidents and dangerous occurrences. You are asked to look after the safety equipment we provide and to follow safety instructions and signs. You are reminded that you are responsible for your own safety and the safety of others who use these premises. This policy will be reviewed regularly and revised as necessary.
